I am calling Twitter Streaming API to return tweets matching one or more filter predicates.
(using fileStream method from R package streamR)
The method has ‘track’ as one of the parameters to listen for specified keywords.
However it seems the track parameter is not having any effect as none of the captured tweets contain the specified keyword.
locations=c(-5, 36, 22, 70),
timeout=10, oauth=my_oauth,language = “en”)
The returned json response doesnt have any tweet with “mauritius”. Why is this behavior?
Thanks in advance.
